The Ac­ci­den­tal Cabin

When an un­ex­pected of­fer came in for their lake home in Michi­gan, Kathy and Brian Skok sold it and set out search­ing for new land to build on. They hap­pened on a Chip Lake prop­erty with a won­der­ful view that would be per­fect for their dream log home.

Why a log home: “We like the rus­tic look,” Kathy says of log homes. Brian had built a log cabin be­fore by hand. “Need­less to say, it took a while to build,” Kathy re­calls. They wanted that style for their new prop­erty, but de­cided to pur­chase milled logs. Most im­por­tant fea­tures: Kathy and Brian love to ca­noe, kayak and hike, and they en­joy watch­ing the ea­gles and swans that live around the lake. They both were ea­ger to own a cozy get­away with vaulted ceil­ings that would al­low for one-floor liv­ing and plenty of space for out­door en­ter­tain­ing.
